Stevenage Chairman Phil Wallace said he is overwhelmed with the interest in the club’s players during this January Transfer Window.

With just over two days left of business, Phil Wallace says he remains steadfast in his approach to recent bids.

“It feels like open season on our players right now. It is very flattering and justifies the huge investment we put into our youth project some years ago, but we are determined not to let our best players leave until they have proved their potential with us.

“We not only have Premier League and Championship interest in four of our young lads – Ben Wilmot, Mark McKee, Andronicos Georgio and Ali Omar – but now we are having to deal with interest in our senior players too.

“We have had two clubs in for Tom Pett today and we have also had approaches from two Championship clubs about other lads in our squad, who we are not ready to sell.

“We are still looking to bring a few more in but the last days of the window are when you can do your best business – or make your biggest mistakes.

“We have today added Luke Amos from Spurs who will bring quality, tenacity and momentum to our midfield and we are keen on adding an experienced striker or two before the window closes, too.’’
